Some narrower rear tires came in and got mounted yesterday! No rub👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Yeah 215/55/r16 are just right. 1/8″ from the spring plate and 1/8″ from the fender lip.
So Dan, how are you feeling about the logitudinal chassis tubes and aftermarket seats? Thats next on the list to facilitate battery mounting I think.
The picture is John’s race car for reference of the chassis tube along insides of the heater channels.FranzParticipantDecember 14, 2022 at 12:01 amPost count: 5390
I had a heck of a time fitting bushings to the aftermarket puma beam as the tubes were tapered. I had to turn the bushings on the lathe to get them just right. 4” narrowed beam now.WAY2COOLParticipantDecember 14, 2022 at 11:04 pmPost count: 468

New front tires should arrive today. Kumho ecsta 195/55 is slightly taller/narrower than the 205/50 currently installed.FranzParticipantDecember 16, 2022 at 3:51 pmPost count: 5390
I’d say its a badass fun build. Thanks for the support Dan! I’m having a great time assembling this car.
Yep, I like it
